Many of our adult patients in Pelham, NY initially ask us: What do I do after my treatment with Invisalign is over? And they soon learn that Dr. Anne Kossowan will continue to have them come into the office, even after orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is complete, to ensure that their teeth stay set and secure in their optimal positions.
Post Treatment with Kossowan Orthodontics
Where you going? Just because you have completed your course of treatment with Invisalign, that does not mean your teeth will stop shifting. Teeth continue to shift and move throughout your adult life. Conscientiously kept appointments with Kossowan Orthodontics ensures that when new problems arise, Dr. Kossowan can intervene and correct the problem so it does not escalate into a more serious situation.
Get a Retainer. Wear it. Again, teeth continue to move and shift naturally after treatment with Invisalign is complete, and wearing a retainer after treatment will ensure that your teeth continue to stay in the desired position. There are different types or retainers that we at Kossowan Orthodontics offer: permanent retainers comprised of a strip of metal fastened to the back surfaces of the teeth, and removable retainers that are worn at night and removed in the morning. Both retainers are effective at maintaining your smile after your Invisalign treatment is over.
Brush. Floss. While this may seem like an obvious tip, it is one of the most important ones. For your teeth and mouth to stay healthy after your treatment with Invisalign, Dr. Kossowan stresses the importance of conscientious oral health care habits after treatment to ensure long-lasting results.
See Your Dentist. Continue to see your dentist after your orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is complete. Your dentist will evaluate the state of your dental health after Invisalign treatment, identify and treat any emerging issues, and help keep your teeth clean and healthy.
Good oral health habits are important, even after treatment with Invisalign. If you live or work in or around the Pelham, NY area, and want more information or want to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kossowan contact us today!
